As important and informative as the others. My overall point was not only did he not look like a LB;, he didn't play like one.

He graded out as our 4th best player on defense against Arizona, and the 6th best player on the entire team.

A 2nd round pick in his 1st NFL game ranks 4th best on defense and 6th best overall?

Thats impressive in my opinion.

True, but at least some haterz actually provide stats and facts to justify their hate, even if its skewed a bit.

But his was a huge swing and miss.

And very telling of our defense. This week at least.

And I believe we'll improve. And I expect Happy and Anthony to be crucial pieces.

Just imagine how they'll play when Lewis and Byrd return.

One good thing came out of this thread,
Rugby reminding us of Superbowl 44.
Good to think about that game!

Re: 44

I just want to see him develop some kind of counter move. From everything I've seen so far he doesn't seem to do anything but just bull rush from the outside. He has great burst, and it helps him to be pretty effective, but in the long run he's got to be a little more diverse in his attack if he's ever going to be consistent. I like his motor, though.

Yep, people seem to think that even though we had about 11 players who did not play here last year, many of whom had not even played a down of football,should have come out against a more than decent Cards team and put up all pro numbers.
I thought the defense could have done a lot worse. He'll veterans on the team last year did a lot worse. It was their first game, this is not their ceiling and they will improve. Its hit or miss to even get a first round pick to come out on day one and make an impact. He and Anthony got their licks in.
Not bad for a bunch of guys coming out of college.
